I love Cassandra’s story because it shows how important a flawless skin is for women. Cassandra’s YouTube video has attracted almost 40 million hits worldwide.
It also shows that you don’t have to be perfect to be signed up by a number of modelling agencies. Cassandra (19) from California is now posing across the U.S. for brands including Bebe and Range Rover.
Experts are understanding why having a pretty face is so important for us women
” Understanding Women’s Complicated Relationship to the Mirror”, a study published by the Aesthetic Surgery Journal says that our skin is the primary concern, and most desired ‘area-to-change’, for women in their 20s to 40s
Background: Facial aesthetic treatments are among the most popular cosmetic procedures worldwide, but the factors that motivate women to change their facial appearance are not fully understood.
Objectives: The authors examine the relationships among the facial areas on which women focus most as they age, women’s general self-perception, and the effect of their personal focus on “beauty points” on their perception of other women’s faces.
Methods: In this prospective study, 200 women who presented to a cosmetic surgery outpatient clinic for consultation between December 2009 and February 2010 completed a questionnaire. The 200 participants were grouped by age: 20–29 years, 30–39, 40–49, and 50 or older (50 women in each group). They were asked which part of their face they focus on most when looking in the mirror, which part they notice most in other women (of different age groups), what they like/dislike most about their own face, and whether they wished to change any facial feature.
Results: A positive correlation was found between women’s focal points and the areas they dislike or desire to change. Younger women focused mainly on their nose and skin, while older women focused on their periorbital area and jawline. Women focus on their personal focal points when looking at other women in their 20s and 30s, but not when looking at older women.
Conclusions: Women presenting for cosmetic surgery consultation focus on the areas that they dislike most, which leads to a desire to change those features. The plastic surgeon must fully understand patients’ expectations to select appropriate candidates and maximize satisfaction with the outcomes.
